Huffington Post Gay Voices Names Editor-at-Large

Michelangelo Signorile has been named The Huffington Post Gay Voices new Editor-at-Large. Signorile is a former Editor-at-Large for The Advocate and Out, and hosts a radio show on Sirius XM’s LGBT channel during the week.

“We’re delighted to welcome Michelangelo Signorile to the HuffPost team,” said Arianna Huffington. “He has his finger on the pulse of the issues that matter to the LGBT community, knows how to start provocative, enlightening conversations, and his engaging, plugged-in and fast-moving sensibility is perfect for the web.”

Signorile will work closely with Noah Michelson, the Editor-in-Chief of Gay Voices, on the editorial direction of the site.

Michelangelo Signorile Named Editor-At-Large of HuffPo Gay Voices

The author, journalist, and talk show host has signed on to Huffington Post’s new gay vertical as editor-at-large. We’re hoping he brings his tradition of “outing” celebrities and media figures to HuffPo, though the press release makes no mention of it in the job description:

In this position, Signorile will help shape the site’s vision and direction, offer commentary and analysis, live-blog events, assist with assigning story coverage, and enlist a wide array of voices to contribute to the conversations of interest to the gay community and beyond.

The press release also mentioned that “HuffPost Gay Voices launched in October and in its first month was the most popular gay site, as measured by comScore (October 2011).” We’re fairly positive that measure is excluding porn websites.

Gabriel Rotello : A la Recherche du Temps Perdu on the West Side

Outweek founder and World of Wonder alum Gabriel Rotello waxed nostalgia for the New York of the 70s/80s, and the life that late he led there. Learning that the West Side building that held his loft will be torn down, Rotello writes:

I thought of dead friends for whom this little world had been their final world. It seemed as if I could make a few phone calls and pull together a rehearsal and no time would have passed at all, except that in the world outside, no one would have answered the phone.

Outweek lasted for two years, and was brave, scrappy, and influential way beyond its circulation numbers, outing Malcom Forbes and running Michelangelo Signorile‘s Gossip Watch column.

And we should have known: Rotello writes for HuffPost.
